Hello,

one of our employees has connected a network share with another username and password. On the same server is also a personal drive for back-up.
Now he has no access to is own drive because windows use the other username to connect to the server. How can it be changed

thanks for the replies

This may be because he has got his credentials for this store in credential manager in Windows 7 on the desktop/laptop he is using. Go to Control panel > Credential Manager and remove the relevant credential from vault.

Let me know if it has worked.

This doesn't work. I think the credential is saved in Windows but can't find it

It can only be saved in Credenitial Manager on Windows 7. If not then when created and mapped the share you may have selected the option to connect using different credentials. Also it may be that the credentials is cached on the server where the share has been created. I would check the server to make sure that all seems fine.

Also I presume you are on domain. Check the user in AD to make sure that the Profile Tab is not pointing to the wrong share.
